There are also a number of rare Northern species like Grevy Zebra, Jacksons Hartebeest and Beisa Oryx and the almost extinct Northern White Rhinos.

ITINERARY

Day 01

Depart Nairobi Wilson Airport for your scheduled morning flight to Nanyuki, or to Kamok the airstrip within ol pejeta conservancy. Upon arrival you will be met and transferred to the camp in Ol Pejeta Conservancy, your journey time is approximately 45 minutes. Lunch at camp then relax until afternoon tea is served. You will then venture out onto the rolling plains on your game drive with one of the Kicheche laikipia Silver guides to enjoy the wonderful array of game on offer. This evening enjoy a sundowner drink at a scenic spot followed by a spotlight drive back to camp. Take a hot shower before joining other guests for a drink around the campfire or in our cosy lounge tent. Dine with your hosts either under the stars or in our adjacent dining tent.

Day 02

An early start to the day with piping hot coffee or tea brought to your tent. Then you are off to the Western side of the Conservancy with your guide. This side of the Conservancy has much less traffic and it is not rare to be the only vehicle around while watching hyenas coming out of their den or rhinos wobbling in the mud. Return to camp for an alfresco lunch and relax afterwards observing the birdlife and if you are lucky some bigger game around the waterhole. You will certainly want to go for an afternoon game drive to see what the Conservancy has to offer. You will be back for sundowner and chat with your hosts. You might choose a private dinner this evening, this is up to you.

 Day 03

Another early start to the day with piping hot coffee or tea brought to your tent. Then select amongst the different activities available: we can organize either a visit to the Northern White Rhino enclosure, go for a walk, canoeing, or mountain bike riding. Return to camp for an alfresco lunch and relax afterwards observing the birdlife and game around the waterhole. This afternoon, if this is the activity you selected, we will take you to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary on a private visit. Following some time with the chimps continue on your evening game drive in search of the black rhinos and other special games Ol Pejeta Conservancy is offering. Come back to the camp at dusk for shower and dinner with your hosts. You might opt for a night drive and in that case, you will dine earlier.

Day 04

This morning, depending on the time of your flight, one can take an early morning walking excursion with one of our guides and a conservancy ranger. Walk duration and distance can be arranged to suit your preference. Return to camp for breakfast before departing to Nanyuki airstrip for your flight to Nairobi. If you are continuing your safari from Nanyuki there are scheduled flights to Masai mara.
